  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 41 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Circus Day Nursery & Pre-school Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 39 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.929 for Circus Day Nursery & Pre-school Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (456 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 491 Ratings = 4.929

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Circus Day Nursery & Pre-school Ltd is based on 39 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 23.8 positive Reviews (119 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 39 Reviews ÷ 23.8 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Both of our children have attended Circus from baby suite to Preschool, our youngest currently still in Preschool.

They have loved every minute of it. Created close bonds with the staff. The inside and outside space is amazing and the location is perfect. It means the children are able to go on regular day trips to the local parks, shops, festivals in town and the theatre.

I would highly recommend Circus to everyone wanting the best for their children, when they cannot be with them.

Our son has been attending Circus days since he was 10 months old and the experience in each group he’s been in has been fantastic. The staff are fantastic and really take time to get to know each child individually. My son has learnt so much from being at the nursery to me he seems ready for pre-school already! But more importantly, I’ve been impressed with the social skills he has developed at circus days. My husband and I chose circus days after visiting and witnessing the genuine care that the staff provide. We have been so happy with our choice.

My third child started at Circus last week, so I have been going to Circus for nearly 7 years and I am so pleased I chose Circus for my first daughter all those years ago. All the staff are so supportive and care so much about the children. It has been so easy dropping my third child off knowing that some of the staff looking after him also looked after my first daughter and know our family.

Circus is an absolutely fantastic nursery - even though I have changed jobs and my oldest is now at school, which means that Circus is no longer ‘en route’ in the morning - I happily make the journey round Cheltenham so I can drop my two youngest off at nursery and know that they will have a wonderful day and be so well cared for.

We cannot recommend Circus enough! Our little boy has been so happy on both his floors. It's so reassuring to go to work and know that he is happy and being so well cared for. He always has so much to tell us about his day when we collect him.

Circus Day Nursery is outstanding, and as an old school qualified National Nursery Examination Board with very high standards, this was a very hard choice to leave my child at a settlement, but this decision was put at ease and Circus Day Nursery ticked every box and more.
My daughter loves what she calls “school” and I’m sure all their hard work, love and support an easy and smooth transition to school.
Always highly recommending to friends and colleagues.

All the staff at Circus Day nursery have made my daughter feel safe and loved in the year and a half she's been there. She frequently tells me who she loves (the staff looking after her, but also the kids in her class - showing she's being taught how to be good friends).
They also have real patience with a mum who probably worries too much!
The facilities are fantastic - especially the gardens. The variety of activities she does is reassuring - and she has really learnt a lot from being in Circus Nursery. She's always surprising me with something new that I know she must have learnt at the nursery. There's a great balance between all the messy fun activities, quiet time, free play and a real commitment to getting outside come rain or shine.
The menu is varied - she eats food at the nursery that she doesn't at home and they deal with her allergies well.
There's a real sense of trust between her carers and us.

My little boy started at Circus Day Nursery & Pre-school Ltd when he was about 7 months old. One of the things that really appealed to me when I first visited Circus was the outside space as it is a rarity in Cheltenham. I was also impressed to see risk assessments displayed throughout the building and a visit to the kitchen showed excellent cleanliness, facilities and food selection. Starting in the baby suite, it was a fantastic environment for my little boy both developmentally and socially. The baby facilities were excellent and we couldn't have asked for more. When the time came to move up to the next level, the transition was seamless and he has excelled and loves his days at nursery. One of the best things about Circus Day Nursery & Pre-school Ltd is the staff. They really are a credit and my little boy adores them. They provide a support to me as a parent that I never expected to receive and I couldn't wish for better.

Both my boys absolutely love going to Circus Day nursery. I could not ask for more from a nursery, the staff are amazing, the relationships they build with the children are nurturing and caring and they learn so much whilst having lots of fun. Such a friendly positive setting, I will actually miss it too when they move on to School!

I’m so glad that we chose this nursery for our son. He has thrived during his time at Circus and I am perfectly satisfied that he has obtained all the skills necessary to progress into a primary school environment. They have helped create a confident, intelligent and enthusiastic little boy and he couldn’t be happier.

The nursery is located on a beautiful road in a spacious building with excellent outdoor facilities. Having a good variety of spaces to run, play and learn was important to us and this nursery definitely delivers on that. It is the staff at Circus that are the main selling point though, and you will be hard pushed to find a nursery with more enthusiastic, loving and nurturing staff. I couldn’t have found a perfect setting for my child and will be sad to leave them when the time comes to move on to pastures new.

Circus Day Nursery & Pre-school Ltd are a fantastic Day Nursery. They strive to make sure the kids are taking part in interesting and worthwhile activities and provide a welcoming and warm environment to all. My kids adore going to nursery and are never sad to see me leave! They are eager to get dropped off and join in the fun and my eldest chats away about everyone she plays with. They strive to make sure it's of the highest standard of cleanliness, it's something I noticed right away when I came to visit the first time, the place was spotless!

We are so pleased we chose Circus. They have been looking after my daughter for just over 2 years now and my son around 6 months. Everyone who works in the setting is so warm and welcoming and the kids love them all. They are very accommodating to each child’s needs and try as much as possible to take into account parents wishes. I love that the children go outside every day (unless the weather is really awful) and have loads of space to explore in the big garden. I feel happy knowing that my children are being well looked after and having lots of fun when they are there. I would recommend Circus to anyone.

Both my little girl and boy attended the Circus Day Nursery, starting as babies and leaving to go off to school. I could not have asked for a more happy, creative, stimulating and loving environment to leave my children in while my husband and I went off to work. The staff treat each child with so much love and care and ensure that each day is full of fun and excitement with new experiences to stimulate learning. The Circus is truly a fabulous nursery which has enabled my children to be sociable, confident, and assured in all that they do. It has undoubtedly contributed to them flourishing.

Circus Day Nursery & Pre-School have been amazing, with my first child who started at 10 months and is now at school and my second who leaves for school in Aug this year. The staff really care and there is a very low staff turnover which is good for the children and also good for me as a parent as it shows me they love what they do and have a great team spirit and are happy in their work. This is demonstrated to me daily, they always have time to tell me how the day has been and are supportive when there have been any changes in my children's behaviour (as is par for the course!). My kids LOVE the staff, and if we see them out of the nursery setting they still run up for cuddles. They have been to see plays, gone to the park, literature festival. The learning reviews are great, you receive a full journal of their progress, my eldest was wonderfully prepared for school by them. From being an anxious mother dropping my little boy off at 10 months, it has been a wonderful journey. Best of all the kids love it!

My son started nursery when he was only 6 months old and he settled soon very well. Since then he has developed in so many ways. He is now a confident and happy boy and I have to thank all the amazing staff at Circus Day Nursery for that.
He has spent there 3 amazing years, surrounded by lovely and caring people. I could not ask more for my child.

We were really apprehensive about having to send our son to a nursery at 11 months old, but we fell in love with the setting as soon as we looked round - especially the outside space, and secret garden! Our son has now been at Circus Day Nursery for over a year and a half and absolutely loves it. He looks forward to going in and seeing his friends every day - it was so hard for us to leave him in the care of others all day, but knowing he is with the team at Circus really makes it so much easier... and to say he enjoys his day is an understatement!

Our son attended Circus Day Nursery from 4 months to 4 years. Especially in the early days when leaving our tiny baby in the hands of others, the staff exceeded any expectations! They were so caring and full of enthusiasm and guided us through weaning and later potty training and towards the end phonics and a fab end of year performance. Circus organised so many fun activities and offered so much variety and stimulation, we could not have asked for more.

My twins, now 3, have attended Circus since they were 1. I was so nervous about leaving them in the care of anyone else but the wonderful staff at Circus put my worries to rest almost at once. My twins absolutely love it here, they have bonded so well with the staff in the different rooms they've been in. The staff are always so enthusiastic and very approachable if I do have any worries or concerns. They always have a full day with lots of learning and fun. My daughter gets upset on the days she's not at nursery! I can't recommend highly enough!

Love staff at Circus day nursery. I was a bit apprehensive to send my son to any nursery (talk about new mum apprehensions) at 11 months but all the staff, including managers, made us feel very welcomed and helped settle not only my little one but helped us (parents) go through the transition smoothly. Now, he has moved from baby suite to jugglers and he absolutely loves going to nursery. He talks about all the activities he does with his room staff and actually wants to go to nursery on Saturday and Sundays, who knew he would love being there so much. Now, his little sister will be joining him in nursery too and can’t wait for her to grow tremendously like her brother. I’m positive all the staff will make her fall in love with nursery too.

Our experience of the Circus Day Nursery & Pre-school has been fantastic and we would definitely recommend to others. My daughter started when she was 13 months old where she has developed in so many ways. Now she is 4 years old and is growing into a strong independent, free-thinking child. We put much of this to the care and attention she has received at the nursery.

My son is 2 years old and had attended Circus since he was 9 months old. He goes for 2 days and loves it! The staff are all brilliant with him and he has formed such good relationships with all of his key workers that he has had so far. It is so much easier leaving him all day knowing he is being looked after by people that seem to genuinely care for him and continue to help him progress. Thank you so much to all the staff there for making my son’s nursery days happy days.

All the staff are wonderful and take such good care of the children and engage and support their development.

We have daily feedback and my son thoroughly enjoys his time at nursery. The garden is wonderful and the food is freshly prepared on site.

I would highly recommend Circus.

My eldest has attended Circus since he was 18months old (soon to be 4!) So when it was time to look for a nursery for my youngest I didn't think twice about where he would go.

We are delighted to have moved our son to Circus Day Nursery and now preschool! Our son absolutely loves it and they make him (and us by default), feel very special. They never rush us when we pick our son up and talk us through his day. I absolutely love seeing photos of what they have been up to that day. Love it really. Many thanks for all your hard work.

Our daughter has grown so much since going to Circus and the facilities are fantastic and the standard of care is outstanding. The children are always learning new things and have a great time in the process.

Thank you for providing such a great service and care.

I looked at a number of different nurseries when choosing our daughter's care provider, however, Circus stood out and we are so pleased that we chose this nursery! We have been so happy with the care provided for our daughter by Circus and are really pleased that we have been able to secure places for our two babies this year. Over the past 3 years at Circus, our daughter has developed wonderful relationships with not only the staff responsible for her immediate care but other members of staff and of course brilliant friendships with other children!
The nursery is fantastic at communicating any issues and works hard to involve parents as much as possible in their child’s learning. I am so happy leaving my child in the care of Circus and would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends.

The preschool are fantastic with phonics and writing, it set her up perfectly for school. My son started in January and he is getting on fantastically. He has delayed speech and the staff are absolutely fantastic with him. Would 100% recommend this nursery. The food is fantastic too and the garden is amazing such a large space for the children to enjoy.

An excellent nursery, highly recommended.
The staff are friendly and seem to remember all the children, even if they aren't in their year!

Sending my first child to nursery was a worry, wondering whether we had selected the right one. The Circus team couldn’t have made my son's first few years any nicer! The staff are great, the meals were healthy, the day trips were lovely and educational and most importantly, my son is very happy there and can’t wait to get back in the mornings. The staff clearly love the children and the feeling is mutual. My son starts school this year and it’ll be sad to say goodbye to the Circus family.

Quite simply the best daycare in Cheltenham. Both my children age 2 and 3 attend and I have never felt anything but happy with every aspect of their care and the way I have been treated. Circus are a family and I don’t know what I’d do without them.

Being a new mother, in a new home, in a new town, ensuring my two-year-old son felt safe and settled at his first nursery was vitally important. I was finding my way and so would he be.

I felt anxious and unsure about leaving him but all worries melted away once I met the founder and a handful of the most loving girls who would be taking care of him.

From his very first day, he’s been thrilled to be in Clowns then Jugglers and now pre-school. He has blossomed into a confident, comfortable, humorous and deeply contented little boy. Curious to know more about the world and the people around him and always up for a cuddle!

I know that I owe much of the grounded sense of security that he enjoys to the heartfelt care he has received from his Circus Family.

Thank you with all my heart.

A fantastic nursery. All the staff are so helpful and always go above and beyond for the children/families. The staff are friendly and welcoming. My daughter is extremely happy in this setting and has thrived since she has started in August 2015. I would like to say a huge thank you to all the fantastic staff.

My little girl has been attending pre-school only two afternoons per week however I am amazed at the positive influence Circus has had on so many important aspects of her life. She loves the environment and the staff are genuinely caring. Even with the short sessions she spends there she has gained so much more social confidence in particular, but also a good sense of what to expect come September at school. I have no previous experience with nurseries but Circus went above and beyond my expectations. Really fantastic work!
